2. Small landscape park created in late eighteenth or early nineteenth-century. Closer to the house is a rare survival of an unaltered seventeenth-century forecourt, with walls and alcoves decorated with contemporary ornamental iron plates and tulips. Also surviving is a seventeenth-century bowling green. Documentary evidence suggests that Stephen Switzer may have been responsible for some early eighteenth-century landscaping.
